Monday, December 17, 2007
TALLAHASSEE — A year and a half after the state Senate shot down former Gov. Jeb Bush's plan to enshrine school vouchers in the state constitution, his top education aide is trying again through the state Taxation and Budget Reform Commission.
Patricia Levesque, a commission member who runs Bush's Foundation for Florida's Future, is pushing two voucher-related proposals to undo court rulings that found vouchers unconstitutional.
